Serves 4 - Gluten Free
- 4 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (14½-ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
- ¼ cup water
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup quick-cooking grits
- 3 cups firmly packed baby spinach
- 1¼ teaspoons Cajun or Creole seasoning
- 1½ teaspoons honey
- 1 pound medium peeled and deveined shrimp
- Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, just until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add broth, water, and ¼ teaspoon of salt and bring to boil. Gradually stir in grits. Reduce heat and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until grits thicken, about 5 minutes.

Set large ridged grill pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add half of shrimp to pan and cook, turning once, until just opaque in center, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
